Everything was pretty good except for I wouldn’t buy anything from any Diamonds International at any ports. Attempted several times to contact them by email and phone. Phone gives you an recored message to email and the email comes back as “undeliverable”

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Buffets were not open long enough and very little selection compared to other ships.

Grand Buffet

1 out of 5

Wasn’t open at convenient hours or appropriate hours. Such as everyone returning from port and excursions. Not a large variety compared to other ships. Kid friendly plain cakes needed!

Very good!

Bacchus Dining Room

4 out of 5

Enjoyed our wait staff. Had the same crew each night even on “anytime dining “ and allows staff to get to know preferences.

Staff very helpful not pushy.

Spa Carnival

3 out of 5

Nice massage but too much hard sell for other services. Supposed to be able to relax not have someone hard sell me services and merchandise.

Service and Staff

Much better!! Our last cruise in June out of Baltimore was absolutely terrible when it came to service including a room steward we didn’t see. Wait staff seemed completely disconnected from each other.
